Zuma threatens to expose his accusers- ‘Tired of keeping Quiet’

DURBAN- Former President Jacob Zuma has launched a veiled attack on the South African Communist Party (SACP) which has accused him of dividing the African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal.

The SACP is also being accused Zuma of being at the centre of a counter-revolution.

Outside the Durban Magistrates Court on Friday, Zuma told his supporters he will expose leaders who have accused him of corruption.

Zuma appeared briefly in court for his money laundering and corruption case which was postponed to 27 July.

The postponement was granted after the judge granted the defence an extension, after they said they were waiting for a response from the Presidency on whether they will continue paying for his legal fees, however the State prosecutor Billy Downer said the National Prosecuting Authority is ready to go to trial and was not happy with the defence unpreparedness.

Speaking in his mother tongue, isiZulu, Zuma attacked his detractors, saying those who accused him of being corrupt are corrupt themselves. He further said he was tired of keeping quiet and will retaliate if provoked.

Other speakers and supporters present were former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng, former communication minister Faith Muthambi, Carl Niehaus, organisation groups Black First Land First (BLF), Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA), the National Funeral Practitioners Association of South Africa, various bodies under the National Interfaith Churches of South Africa (NICSA) and the Commission for Religious Affairs (CRA), who staged a rally after the court proceedings.
